Arugula Ristorante At Cold Point Village (BYOB)
Service was fine. Unfortunately they made errors on my salad and bought the wrong entree. They substituted another entree that was quickly thrown together. It was not up to standards. They did not charge for one dessert and coffee but in my opinion the entree should have been removed as well. I was disappointed.
We were impressed with the quality of food and service. The only detriment to the evening was the noise level at this restaurant is unusually high. Don't know whether it's an acoustics issue or some other. But difficult to carry on table conversation without elevated voices to be heard over the overall noise in the restaurant. Not sure I've ever experienced something like this in another restaurant venue.
Great food except the bread is horrible. A terrific restaurant like arugula should never put out bread that bad. The service was OK but a bit rushed, the waiters didn’t really listen to us on several occasions we didn’t bother get what we needed such as more cheese or red pepper until we had to ask a second time. The acoustics here are horrible as well. If you want great food this is the place to be, if you want great conversation go elsewhere.
Always a great experience- have been here several times. Food is great, staff is great, all around great place!
Arugula is always a very busy place. We had a 645 res on a Sat nite and waited a half hour to be seated. They had a huge party of about 25 people. Once seated, the service was very good and the food fantastic! We both had huge salads, one Caesar, one arugula which were excellent. My husband had risotto with sausage and mushrooms which he loved. I had chicken with olives, tomatos and artichokes which was delicious. It came with a large portion of fresh broccoli and tomatoes and mashed potato. Altho Arugula is quite noisy, the food and service are well worth it. I highly recommend!
Great food and service. Noisy
We lingered long over a lunch meeting, staying well past the time other patrons were gone. There was no pressure whatsoever to leave. Thank you for the great service!
Food was very good. We’ve been here before and enjoyed it very much. The service on this occasion was average. They seemed under staffed.
Food and service were both excellent! I highly recommend!
The food was delicious - my friends & I were totally satisfied with our meals. Everything tasted so fresh! The service was attentive and friendly. The noise level sometimes made it difficult to hear, but as the evening lengthened, it got a little better.
We had a fantastic dinner at Arugula. The service was outstanding, the food was amazing and the atmosphere was just perfect for our small group of colleagues. Will definitely be back!
We have a wonderful experience every time we go but we must go during slower/quieter times as we have not had an issue with noise. We go to dine and not at 'popular' times. Service is always pleasant and accommodating and we have never been disappointed with our meals. Great location too with so few options near by offering this caliber of food and service.
This place is a real gem. The food was outstanding. I had a salad with buffalo mozzarella, the eggplant appetizer and the artichoke appetizer. Everything was divine. For all the food we ate, my friend and I didn’t spent that much money!! Can’t wait to come back with my husband.
Great food and atmosphere
The restaurant is incredibly noisy. They would benefit from either carpeting or other sound proofing.
The noise clearly distracts from the overall experience.
Great food but get there early - it gets very crowded and loud!
Service was good. Panini was cold...not roasted turkey as I expected.
It was my 60th birthday and I had an amazing meal. Kudos to Tia for bringing me a lemon sorbet with a candle in it. She is she sweet!
Arugula is a nice, reasonably priced Italian restaurant. The bread and small serving of bruschetta was very good and a nice complimentary start. The roasted pepper appetizer was good although a little heavy on the salt and oil. Oil was very tasty for dipping too. I had angel hair pasta with crab. The pasta was a bit overdone, the crab was dry, and the dish rather bland. My friend had a pasta dish with a red sauce and really enjoyed it.
Maybe it’s best to stay with a simple dish here.
Food is very good with generous portions. Biggest drawback is the noise level - it’s hard at times to hold a conversation.
We were extremely happy with everything except the noise level was a bit high. I would definitely recommend the restaurant.
Waiter was not as pleasant as we expected. Food was very good.
The food was excellent! The noise level was terrible. It was so loud in there, we could not hear anything that the waiter said, and we could not have a conversation with each other throughout dinner. It was really bad, but because the food was so great I’m sure we will go back again. I sure hope they can do something about the noise problem!
Great food and great service as always.
Great service Great food!!! the place is very nice the servers are very professional
We truly enjoy our experience
Good food, good service, was pretty darn load though. Hard to talk.
Very disappointed. Grilled artichoke appetizer was a strange mix of foods, especially the melted cheese with the shrimp. Pasta entree arrived 90 minutes after sitting down. It was lukewarm and shrimp was overcooked. Utensils were removed with salad and never replaced. Not at all like the last time we dined there.
The menu needs to be updated. Prices high for chicken dishes. Food is average. Service is often rushed and servers are not friendly. It is very loud and hard to talk and hear the people or person at your table.
great food great service noise level is on the high side
Fresh tasty and great choices
Always great food, service is usually very good. But the noise level in this restaurant is beyond belief. I’ve been in restaurants five times the size and it’s quieter than arugula. It’s a real problem. We would be there every week if it weren’t for the ambience. That said, if you’re looking for a great meal at fair value prices, this place is great. My chicken Parmesan was superb as was the side of angel hair and my missed the salad was excellent and fresh. My wife’s cappellini with crab was like why is excellent and done to perfection. The only food knock into continual on is that the bread at this place is among the worst I’ve ever had an Italian restaurant. It’s like they went over to giant and bought some bread. That’s the only disappointment here. They do bring a piece of bruschetta for everybody which is quite good but the bread is horrible.
Always great service and food.
Always outstanding, delicious, and fun. Excellent staff and service.
Great place for dinner meeting
The food is consistently delicious! We love it here.
The food and service are very good. I do think it is a little loud in the restaurant, but the food makes up for it, so I would definitely go back again.
The appetizers were delicious! The grouper (a special) was a bit bland but all the other dishes were yummy. It is VERY noisy in there.
Dinner at Arugula was outstanding! Service is always great and food incredible! BYOB is a plus!
Excellent food superb service
Best Italian restaurant around
The food was excellent! I always enjoy going to Arugula.
